@khxy Great to see you here again! Thanks for the translation of Ki's interview.
It's almost 2 am here, and Ki's recent gushy interview answers are keeping me up I'm glad he's not listening to overly concerned fans and antis, and just doing what he wants. Negative comments will always be around, but like Mel said, he and Kyo are smart and do not need our advice. They know what they're doing. While fans had helped in shaping his career, ultimately, his life is his, and so far, he has had an exemplary life. He hasn't committed anything shameful or controversial, so, he has earned our unsolicited trust. Let's respect and trust him to be this unbridled now. It also couldn't have been easy trying to keep their relationship a low profile for as long as possible.
He and Kyo may have probably lost some fans, but I think it's a safe assumption that they also gained new ones after their announcement.
Finally, a few pages back, someone had mentioned that Kyo may at one time ended up "trying to be cold and egocentric" due to her being careful after her heart was used. I don't agree with that assessment because despite those challenges in her life, she still highlighted charitable causes, donating to them, too. She still expanded her friendships and maintained the ones she already has. I could list some more, and she may have been careful with her heart, but those are not the actions of a person trying to be cold and egocentric. She was warm and selfless even before and after her personal struggles and even long before getting to know Ki.
On another note, I know some of you are relatively new here, but please refrain from quoting images. It is against the rules. In the past, we had been reprimanded many times by the mods, with this thread threatened of being shut down because of such a violation. In fact, this thread was shut down once for some hours because of this violation. So, PLEASE, DO NOT QUOTE IMAGES.
From Rules: Shippers' Paradise:
Also ... from Soompi's general Forum Rules:
Sometimes, there are a few who circumvent this rule by quoting people's posts ... Not cool.
Lastly, I don't think there's anything in the rules about quoting just the written content, but it's also a general courtesy to not quote entire long posts or please, at least truncate the quoted long ones. Another option is simply tagging the person to which one wants to reply. Otherwise, it takes quite a lot of scrolling down just to get to every response, especially the substantive ones.
LOL. Yeah ... so, I guess this makes me the thread police, but from experience, it's no fun having this thread shut down. Others only have this forum to go to for information and as an outlet for shared joy, so, it would be a shame if we're closed down, even for a few hours.
@utkim!!!!!!! thank you for the link!
@kyonim I'm sorry I forgot to thank you, too. Thanks for always providing translations
Thanks to @khxy and Ace Chingu ... from the article that Utkim linked to below, Ki also mentioned that his dad is happy that Asia's goddess will become his family member. In keeping with their warm and altruistic nature, the Songs want to be responsible people who take care of society.
And from this article, per Ace Chingu, Ki answered that they [the Songs] call each other "Hye Kyo ya" and "Joong Ki ya."
From this article, Ace Chingu translated: "JK said CTH liked most his marriage with HK. CTH has been closed with SHK for a long time. And CTH told JK he had some feeling that these two become in special relationship"
